Check your speaker terminal connection going into your laptop to make sure it is not shorting or falling out. Try using a pair of headphones to see if this issue is still present.

Else, try updating to the newest sound card driver, available here:

On laptops, sometimes your TouchPad is disabled for no apparent reason. To reactivate it, first try restarting your PC. If there's no good change just try:

We need the software driver and your mouse are installed

This trick works in Windows XP and Windows Vista.
  • Go to Control Panel> Mouse> Settings tab of the device
  • Click (or to disable)

Notes:
  • On some models, there is a keyboard shortcut to activate or deactivate the touchpad. For example, a ACER, just do Fn + F7.
  • You can click Reset device if neither of those solutions will work.
  • The official website provides synaptics drivers and software needed to run your TouchPad.
  • On the latest laptops, there is a special button to Enable/Disable the Touchpad.
  • HOPE THIS HELPS

The pointer is black and will not move


Without knowing the model of the laptop I was guess the laptop has either a button (generally next to the touchpad) or a Function Key (fn) and one of the F# keys will have the picture of a mouse hit the fn + that F# key and that should enable the mouse.
Also if you have a usb mouse, plug that in and if it works that will rule out software issues with programs such as synaptec.

If this doesn't work please comment with the model number

It stopped working what to do to start it


1. The touchpad and external mouse drivers should be able to work together. Just make sure that you have the touchpad enabled. To see if you have the touchpad enabled, hold the Fn key and press F9. The combination Fn-F9 locks and unlocks the touchpad. If pressing Fn-F9 once, twice, thrice does not seem to lock/unlock your touchpad.. then you might not have the Toshiba hotkeys working or enabled. So lets forget it and try step 2. If Fn-F9 solved your problem.. there you go !

Arrow The way it works is you have to keep holding Fn key and have to hit F9 once, that should lock the touchpad. Again if you keep holding Fn and hit F9 again, that should unlock it and so on..

2. Sometimes this solves the problem.. Do a power cycle of your computer.. i.e., unplug the AC.. take the battery out.. Plug the AC back in and try to turn computer ON with AC alone (i.e, leave the battery out and just start computer with AC power).. Once windows loads up and everything is fine, then turn system off. Unplug AC.. put battery back in.. Plug AC back in and restart computer.. All should be working now.. if not, keep reading..

3. Click on START>go to RUN>type devmgmt.msc

4. Now in the Device Manager, click on the + sign next to Mice and other pointing devices. Right click on each device listed under "Mice and other pointing devices" and Uninstall ALL the MOUSE Devices you see listed there..

attention Make sure you ONLY uninstall the Mouse devices and not ALL devices from Device Manager like your CD, Display etc.. Just uninstall the devices listed under Mice and Other pointing devices after you have clicked on the + sign to the left of it..

5.Install Drivers

6. In the page that came up saying Downloads ( All operating systems, All categories ), at the top drop the list Filter by Operating System and select Windows XP (I am assuming you have XP.. if you have another OS, select that instead).. then on the right of it, drop the list Filter by Category and select Touchpad.. then click on the button "Apply Filters"..

7. Now you just see two drivers listed..

09-30-2004 Toshiba Utility
Touchpad Toshiba Touchpad Enable/Disable Utility for Windows XP (v1.27.0.3; 09-24-2004; 5.34M)

06-15-2004 Driver
Touchpad Alps Touchpad Driver for Windows XP/2000 (v6.0.303.5; 05-26-2004; 2.43M)

Click on the Download link on the right.. Save them to your computer somewhere in a folder or desktop, where you can remember.. After the files are downloaded, double-click on the file.. Unzip.. then Run.. and it will install the driver..

8. Restart your computer.. Now the Touchpad should be working fine.. Try Fn-F9 combination.. i.e, keep holding Fn key and tap F9 once, twice to see if it locks/unlocks the touchpad..

My elan touchpad is not working. the mouse will not move unless i plug in an external mouse


There is a FN + Key (F9 for me) Hotkey to disable the elan touchpad on ASUS Laptops.
This might be the problem if someone activated it by accident.
Also the correct drivers might be missing.
You can get the latest drivers on ASUS Homepage

I have an Asus K60 Laptop.I can not figure out how to turn off the touch pad, as I am using a wireless external mouse instead of the touchpad on the laptop.Any clues?


Did you try the FN key and F9...
That is what they say to disable your touchpad

You have a function key which is called Fn That key allows you to use the functions on the F series keys

So Fn then F9 should do the trick
